Meeting Description:

GLAC is the annual conference of the Society for Germanic Linguistics (SGL), an organization serving a broad community of scholars teaching and researching in Germanic linguistics and philology. Papers submitted to GLAC may be on any linguistic or philological aspect of any historical or modern Germanic language or dialect, including English (to the Early Modern period) and the extraterritorial varieties. Papers from the full range of linguistic and philological subfields, as well as differing theoretical perspectives, are welcome. Abstracts submitted to GLAC will be reviewed anonymously.

Call for Papers:

The organizers of the 27th Germanic Linguistics Annual Conference (GLAC 27), sponsored by the University of Wisconsin–Madison, invite faculty, graduate students, and independent scholars to submit abstracts to the conference, which will be take place virtually from Wednesday, May 12 through Friday, May 14, 2021.

There are two options for participating in GLAC 27:
- 30-minute papers on original research (20 minute talk, 10 minute question period)
- Poster sessions on research (via prerecorded “lightning talks” and breakout rooms for discussion)

Papers and posters may be on any linguistic or philological aspect of any historical or modern Germanic language or dialect, including English (to the Early Modern period) and the extraterritorial varieties. Papers from the full range of linguistic and philological subfields, including phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, sociolinguistics, stylistics, language variation, language typology, metrics, first and second language acquisition, foreign language education, language contact and language change, as well as differing theoretical perspectives, are welcome. All abstracts will undergo anonymous peer review.

Abstracts must be submitted electronically in PDF format by March 1, 2021. Abstracts should be a maximum of one single-spaced page in length and written in a standard 12-point font. They should be submitted through Easy Abstracts at http://linguistlist.org/easyabs/glac2021.

A note from the organizers:
Because of the online format we expect that there will be fewer speaker slots than is normally the case at GLAC. Thus, we will offer expanded poster sessions, as well as a conference repository for abstracts and recorded presentations, which will be accessible during and after the conference. In setting the presentation schedule, our first principle will be to give preference to graduate students and early career researchers. Second, we will aim for breadth in topics. We ask that each individual submit only one abstract this year, either for a single-authored paper/poster or a co-authored paper/poster.

**Please indicate at the top of your abstract if you think your paper works *only* as a paper or a poster. Our default assumption will be that submissions are for either format.**
